An option to turn on the following automation mode:
When ever a selection is made PT should turn on preview.
When there's no selection preview is turned off.
Also once preview is on and you have changed a parameter preview should stay ON even when the selection has been changed till you've either written the changes or turned off preview manually.
It could be called "auto-preview" or similar.
When working I find that when I want to ride a value I don't make a selection and when I set static adjustments I have a selection active.
This would reduce the passes that I do with preview on when I actually what to write dynamic automation and vice versa to a minimum.
This should be a mode that can be turned on and off and a manual press of the preview button / eucon soft key should be able to override it.
This feature would literally save a hundred clicks not he "preview" button every day.
Sort of relates to this request:
But I think goes further as it would solve both on the same ticket.
UPDATE: To cater the different workflows AVID could integrate something like the WACT-Matrix on the Harisson consoles that enable you to set every combination of the above behavior in a matrix setting style. I can not describe how this works in detail as it would make this text very long but anyone who'e familiar with the Harisson consoles will know what I'm talking about.
